Gotham Garage.

My padre—let’s call him, Normality—is considering the addition of a BMW 1 Series to his automotive repertoire in the next year or two. And apparently he was fairly impressed by my garage that, thanks to the former owner, now sports heavy-duty lighting, serious amounts of insulation, and an industrial heating unit. Now he’s considering amp-ing up his own garage in preparation for a possible new play toy.

There are a couple of cool garage solutions out there, such as a sweet FLOR arrangement or a classic tile deal. But it wasn’t until recently that I discovered the ultimate garage set up. In the preview for The Dark Knight, Christopher Nolan’s up and coming sequel to Batman Begins, we catch a glimpse of sexy, modern carport-like-none-other. Now we don’t know where this “garage” actually is just yet. It may be part of the Batcave—but to me it looks more like it’s some secret location for the Batmobile—perhaps beneath Wayne Enterprises.

What we do know is that the art direction and production design for The Dark Knight is off the hook. Talk about attention to detail. Obviously, Heath Ledger’s makeup is sick, which in this case means awesome. And though “The Tumbler” version of Batmobile hasn’t really been updated for this installment—the coolest new addition to the Bat’s arsenal seems to be the Batpod.

Word on the street is that at Macworld this year, Jobs is going to announce that the aforementioned Batpod will apparently play both mp3's and movies.
